I will say I was a little apprehensive going to have Indian food but this place exceeded my expectations by a long ways. Staff was extremely good knowledgeable and attentive to her needs. I strongly recommend this location and restaurant. I had the tikka masala and it was amazing. Very handy to the DoubleTree hotel in Lexington.

I eat at Taj at least once per week. On the lunch buffet there is always a variety of dishes from bland to spicy. If you have a question about the spice level in dishes, just ask any member of the staff. They are all very friendly. The lunch buffet desserts always include jalebi and homemade Indian coconut ice cream... More

They have the best dishes for dinner. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Always accommodating and the food is always as order. Staff even encourage this regular to try something different. Doesn't disapoint.

It's been a few years since I have been here for lunch, and this time it was not up to the quality of previous visits. The curried goat was mostly bones and gristle, the naan bread was flaky and underbaked and the rice pudding was very watery. Prices are a little higher, but still reasonable. There are enough choices that... More

We had the fathers day buffet. All the food was nice and the price was reasonable. It wasn't very spicy for an Indian - there wasn't a spicy choice. I will also never understand the goat curry. After living in the uk and never ever seeing it - i have tried it here - but don't like it and can't... More

We came here about 2 year ago for the buffet, and loved it. We came back yesterday and although it was still good we were a little disappointed that the dishes weren't up to the previous standards. The curries weren't as spicy or flavourful as previous times!!!!!!!! Staff are friendly and prices reasonable.

The food is great and the staff are so friendly and polite. I live about an hour from the restaurant but I make sure to eat here every time I'm in town.

I was in town on business and at a hotel Where I have not stayed before. I looked for nearby restaurants and saw that this had good reviews. The food was good, the service was pretty lackluster, and the atmosphere left a lot to be desired. Two large TVs were on at a volume that made sure everyone could hear... More
